blinker sound at all times even when turn signals not in use
Drives me crazy. Keeps clicking after it is turned off. Often wonder if this is the case for the actual turn signals. Are they shutting off or continuing to blink?

The first occurrence was a couple of years ago, then it stopped on its own. It has started again after very cold temps have hit our region.
